to what people say in montana. he does. there's been single payors in his state. and this republican force is going to die. when grassley said the other day he pretty much admitted this was a farce, chairman baucus knows he has to get a bill out of this committee and if he only has democrats to work with, guess what the majority democrats on his committee favor a political option. if he's going to get a bill out of this committee with zero republican boats it's going to have to have a public option in the senate finance bill; otherwise, there isn't going to be a bill, right? and he knows there has to be a bill. so it matters what you say. it's one of the reasons i've been very careful not to criticize individual senators. i don't mind talking about their views because at the end, i think we're going to get almost every democratic senator. almost every one because there's not going to be any republicans. they're not going to be interested in forming the bill and, therefore, the democratic caucus is going to have a huge influence in this and the majority of the people in the democratic caucu

. >> my colleague from montana brought up the testimony from mr. ludwig, i want to go into another area of his testimony that i found very interesting. he makes the point, and i'm sure he could make it much better than i, which he may get a chance to do later, but he would suggest avoiding a two-tier system that allows the largest too big to fail institutions over smaller institutions. he makes the point that perhaps it would be also two-tier regulators, the best light it is in one system and others in another. the--- to regulators in once -- the best regulators in one system and the others in another. and not treating a bias and the system that would be in favor of those institutions to develop over those that were not too big to fail. >> there are a couple of questions, one being weather should be tier one entities designated as to begin fail, regardless of the occ and oversight. and weather as part of regulatory consolidation that you have a regulator based on size. we have concerns about designating institutions formally as tier one. i think you could probably say he was not, based

profiles, billings, montana, 11% of the workforce have a job profile. contrast that with boston, where 29.7%, not only is it a much larger area, from a number standpoint, the percentage is overt three times, times that of a rural area. you have to ask yourself why. from a quick job search standpoint, there are also jobs in those rural areas. i put a map on a wall, we wanted to say test ourselves, where do we go, we came up with kentucky. it is a little to the east but it is definitely a rural are if you go to the next slide, when you do a job search, you are going to find four or 500 jobs, many of them in pikesville. what you see year is you don't have the choices or the saturation of jobs in that ariane and you have to say why is that? do employers even have access to do this on line? what i find interesting is that you will find in these aas companies that have large locations in metropolitan areas, reuiting in more rural areas, the same way they are recruiting in metropolitan areas. i am recruiting out of d.c. a centralized operationq center, putting a job on a job board or m

gave for not declaring war on japan? >> guest: if i remember correctly it was pacifist from montana and she had as opposed to world war i and wor war ii. >> caller: so i see. and the other thing -- and you may have discussed this, i understand that the nal -- the japanese naval code was broken. i'm not accusing the president of knowing the nature or where the attack took place. the question is was he informed that there was a potential for an attack in the pacific? deny that there was a potential fo an attack on the pacific at that time? and if he did know, shouldn't he put all bases on the western pacific on alert. thank you? >> guest: that's a great question. we had broken the japanese diplomatic code but we had the ability but not complete to use the japanese naval code. the tragedy is that they did send out two weeks before the war, they sent outn alert everywhere in the pacific. that's art of e reason that admiral kimmel and general short are fired. they have been given warnings. we clearly knew the japanese were on the ve. we were actually tracking japanese troop ships going d
